When we are open there’s Jazz! November 21st 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents Linda Theus-Lee & HeartStrings!
Linda Theus-Lee’s musical journey has been on a continuum since a very young age. A native of Los Angeles, California and born into a musical family her musical roots started early by studying dance and theatre, and by watching her older siblings create music with original ideas and creative expressions. Theus-Lee, first love was dancing, but then as time moved on she found herself with the love of singing. She says “I’ve always had an affinity to sing and create at a young age.” She feels that her passion and style is a gift from God that needs to be embraced, and celebrated.
Having toured the world wherever her voice took her, she arrived in Denver 16 years ago. She has played throughout Denver, including performing the National Anthem at the Pepsi Center for the Denver Nuggets, her one woman show entitled “Rea’s Story” at the Crossroads Theatre, and even opened for Kenny “BabyFace” Edmonds when he performed at the Grant Amphitheater in Clement Park in Littleton, Colorado 2011.
Theus-Lee’s musical creativity lives in vocal Jazz, Blues, Musical Theatre and R&B. In addition she is also a very talented percussionist, and loves writing songs on her guitar. She loves family and friends and holds a Master of Social Science degree with emphasis in Education and Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. Linda’s ongoing commitment is to empower students about how important they are, and about the importance of education in their lives!
When we are open there’s Jazz! October 11th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents jazz duo CJ Nicolai & Larry Wegner.
Larry Wegner and I have been performing together nearly nine years now. We first met and started collaborating at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, where we still take the stage on a regular basis. From those cabaret roots grew a fantastic creative partnership which has now evolved into our upcoming EP and album.
While many know Larry from his regular Thursday nights at the Clocktower, many also know him from his longtime tenure at the Brown Palace for tea, or from his days at the late Crown Social. He’s been making music and performing for decades and has all the flourish, polish, and panache you could hope for.
We share a deep appreciation of the Great American Songbook and of the music of decades past. In our performances, we love to deliver both the well-known-and-loved standards, and also the lesser known gems, some surprises, and other exciting things that I can’t tell you about just yet! Larry’s sensitive and inventive piano skills are the perfect vehicle for the vocals I love to deliver — inspired by, but never mimicking, Ella, Sarah, Billie, and the legends we all still sigh over.
